Prices for the 600LT coupé start at £185,500 and move up to £201,500 for the convertible. Next to the Lamborghini Huracán Performante and Porsche GT2 RS (both of which started around the £208,000 mark), that looks like good value. Limited production numbers mean the 600LT should fare well in terms of residuals, too.

Of course, most owners probably won’t skimp on options. Our test car weighed in a smidge above £222,000, with extras such as the Luxury Pack, Security Pack (£3980) and dazzling Myan Orange Elite paint (£3660) all doing their bit to push that asking price up.

The McLaren holds its value considerably better than the cheaper Audi R8 and more expensive Lamborghini Huracan Spyder

Those looking to strip as much weight as possible out of their 600LT by opting for additional swathes of carbonfibre and lightweight race seats might just push that price up even further.
